Macdonald Hotels now has two Manchester hotels which are able to boast award winning breakfasts; Macdonald Manchester and Macdonald Townhouse are part of Macdonald Hotels & Resorts who recently attained a highly acclaimed industry award for the most important meal of the day.

For the second time in three years, Macdonald Hotels has won the Best Breakfast award at the Menu Innovation and Development Awards (MIDAS), which aims to recognise outstanding talents in the restaurant sector.

Guests at either Macdonald hotel in Manchester city centre can take advantage of the full award winning breakfast menu, which includes organic mueslis and fresh fruit, John Ross Jnr smoked salmon and free range Yorkshire sausages.

Steve Dunford, General Manager of Macdonald Manchester Hotel & Spa, said: "It's an honour for us as part of the group to receive such a prestigious award. We pride ourselves on being able to offer our guests the finest, quality food. We work with a small selection of UK-based suppliers, and our restaurant chefs use the best raw ingredients so all food is bursting with nutrients and flavour."

Having invested £120k last year to improve its breakfast menu, Macdonald Hotels takes what health experts class as the most important meal of the day very seriously. Unlike many other hotel groups, Macdonald Hotels' restaurants celebrate the best ingredients on offer across all areas of catering; breakfast, lunch, room service, conference and banqueting, using only the most fresh of ingredients.
